Lomography. Very cool.
Defined by the urban dictionary as:
a type of art photography in which color is emphasized. Traditionally, cameras such as the Holga, Lomo, Colorsplash, and Supersampler are used to create strange and unusual photographs. Lomographic photos are primarily characterized by vignettes (blurry and faded edges), random subjects, and nonadherance to traditional photography rules.
I started a new gallery this week called "Lomography Inspired". After recently falling in love with the look I could hardly wait to apply this new fad to my perspective. I love it. I hope you do too.
There are ten rules to lomography, which I find very freeing, and result in some interesting art. They are:
Take your camera everywhere you go
Use it any time – day and night
Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it
Try the shot from the hip
Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible
You don't have to know beforehand what you captured on film
Don't worry about any rules
